    We were hit hard by the recession in 1980 and again by the the 2008 disaster.

    Our factory closed in the first recession. One of my former students started a wood pellet plant and another has upgraded a machine shop and also makes archery equipment. We also had a physical therapy clinic open. OTOH, Walgreens bought out our drug store and closed it down.

    Things are getting slightly better but it is a slow process. FWIW the taxable value of our home went up this year after declining the last three.
